Hi Firkraag,
Would the answer be an iceberg?
Here's a funny riddle:
You're either covering it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one... what is it?
I assume the answer is "your arse", because the other word that fits is verbotten.
A pimple is the only thing that I could think of for Andrea's riddle!
Hehe, although I personally wouldn't kiss a pimple, I guess both could be right, but Grondy had what I was going for Big Smile Smilie
Anyone got us another riddle?
....or the answers to the ones that have already been asked from the one who made them... that would be nice too.

It runs up the hill
And runs down the hill
But in spite of all
It stands still?

the anser to the one I posted in the Jurnals, is a ROAD!

But heres another:
The faster you run the harder it is to catch me!
any help would be great!!!
I think I know. The faster you run the harder it is to catch your breath. Smile Smilie
Here's another riddle (if you don't mind, Amari’, i'll take your turn):

There is a man in the field
There is a pack on his back
The man is dead

What happened to this man?

Super Scared Smilie
Had he been crushed to death by that collective of Cub Scout Dens, a Cub Scout Pack?
Super Scared Smilie
Uh.....he's dead 'cause a pack of wolves have just killed him?

I'm guessing the pack on his back is the parachute that failed to open and the cause of death is that squishy feeling that happens when one tries to land rather too quickly.

Super Scared Smilie
Ooo tricky tricky... I thought something about wolves or vultures (a pack) on his back, but Val's seems most reasonable and logical.
I thought Grondys 'death by boy scouts' was quite interesting. Wink Smilie
I'm not very big, and rather skinny
please don't strike me or i'll react
i won't be very happy cuz i'll be covered in black

what's white and black and red all over <----this one riddle is better spoken, rather than written, and if i wrote it in proper english it'd be too easy

this last one is more or less a joke, but it's too good to pass up...

How do you fit an elephant into a SafeWay bag?
HINT: Take the 'S' out of 'Safe" and the 'F' out of 'Way'
Is the answer "a match" Turin?
ya the answer to my 1st riddle is match, good job Terrijayne! I just made that one up in like a minute, and i swear you figured it out in about the same length time, so i guess it wasn't hard enough Wink Smilie
Thanks Turin! I usually don't get riddles, which is why I have no clue about your second one. Hmmmm.
what's white and black and red all over

That'll be a newspaper, mate!
What is it when it is more powerful then a sword more deadly then a gun cant be seen but can be felt.

It is a person's love
How do you fit an elephant into a SafeWay bag?
RE: the hint: "Way" doesn't have the letter F in it; so like it can't be done. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

"Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is."

hehehe try that one!
Grondy says he moved these posts from Riddles under Current Games. He will ask Grep to move this thread under Current Games:

Since I haven't found any threads about this, I thought it would be fun to start up a riddle thread.
Okay, the rules are simple: 1)ask a riddle, doesn't have to be Tolkien related. 2)Your riddle can be any form, prose, poem, story riddle, just a question, it doesn't matter as long as it's a riddle.
3)You try and figure out the riddle last posted, 4)you can talk to each other, ask opinions, whatever you can to figure it out. 5)The person asking cannot give too directs hints. 6)Whoever gets it correct asks the next riddle.
So here goes:
What has four holes, you go in the larger one, and come out of the three smaller ones. When you're inside, you're ready to go out, and when you're outside, you're ready to go in. What is it?Bad King Smilie

Grondy likes these rules and we can continue the game with these rules, which I have also added to the first post in this thread.
I was wondering what happened to it, I went to Current Games and couldn't find it.Elf Confused Smilie
Thanks Grondy.Elf With a Big Grin Smilie
It seems my riddle's a bit of a poser,Bad! Smilie either that, or nobody's even looking. Just let me know if you give up on it.
as i said before, i dont know but didnt i answer 2 of yours??? something about a barrell i swear that i answered that one???
I think I may have heard this riddle before, but I don't have a clue. Has anyone else?
when you're outside, you're ready to go in

Here's a bit of a hint: it's a winter riddle.
I feel a bit stupid writing this , but is it an Igloo ? Smile Smilie
Well, if it's winter, I'm guessing it's a sweater and not a T-shirt. Me, I'm still trying to figure out that "gry" one that's tickling the back of my brain....
Ah yes, a sweather sounds about right. And the answer to the gry-riddle is "language". Wink Smilie
Darnit Amarie, you beat me to the 'language' answer, and I supposed I'll go with 'sweater' as well for the other one; I'll have to pay attention when a new riddle is posted...
As Morambar was the first to answer correctly, he's up. (Maybe I shouldn't have given that hint, it made it way to easy, darn.Exploding Head Smilie )
Oh, and come up with a good one, I'm what you could call a riddle-master.

ok this is how it works someone proposes a riddle then the next preson gives us the answer and give another riddle and so on. Now I realise that someone might get the riddle wrong but we are all tolkein fanatics lets see what we can do........

this will get us started (riddles in the dark)

alive without breath
as cold as death
never thirsty, ever drinking
all in mail never clinking.......

Might be nice to wake this thread up. And we all know the answer to this one, don't we? Orc Smiling Smilie
The riddle to end all riddles: "Out of the eater came forth meat, out of the strong came forth sweetness."
Seems I remember Samson's riddle which he made up about a lion he had killed with his bare hands, and in whose carcass he later found a bees-nest and honey, which he took home.

Virumor's riddle was asked by Samson to the Philistine villagers, with whom he was staying and was to marry one of them. He asked it as a bet in hope of gaining clothing for his men if the villagers couldn't answer it within a month, if they could he would have to give the village a reward in kind.

But his Philistine wife to be, wormed the answer from him and told the other villagers. When they correctly guessed it, his anger was roused and he left going to a different city where he killed another bunch of Philistines and took their clothing which upon his return, he used to pay his debt to the villagers. He then left without his wife, for he was still unhappy with her and she was given to his best man by her father.

I also think Virumor forgot, probably on purpose, to say "Fish".

"What have I got in my pocket?" What do you mean, 'No fair!', Bilbo used that as a riddle Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

Hint: They jingle and aren't coins; and they certainly don't make me invisible. Elf Sticking Tounge Out Smilie
Hmmm I'm not sure I really WANT to know what's it your pocket and it jiggles. Wink Smilie

Oh it JINGLES... Well either it's Santa Claus, or more likely, a set of keys.
Yes, it was keys.
A man was found dead in his study. He was slumped over his desk and a gun was in his hand. There was a cassette recorder on his desk. When the police entered the room and pressed the play button on the tape recorder they heard: "I can't go on. I have nothing to live for." Then there was the sound of a gunshot. How did the detective immediately know that the man had been murdered and it wasn't a suicide?
The police didn't have to rewind the tape which should have continued recording to the bitter end.
It is not the nature of suicides that the deceased are so considerate, that they rewind the tape from the after-life. Elf With a Big Grin Smilie

WARNING: Kids, never test this at home or any where else! Teacher Smilie
Good detective work Grondy, you're a regular Hercule Poirot!
